Garden... check.

In my never ending quest to become self sustainable and rich, I promised to build my wife a garden as a Valentine's Day gift (because gifts given should, whenever possible, should benefit the gift giver as well). So about a year after I promised the garden, I built it (hey that's standard turn around in today's economy). Rather than build some Nancy pants garden like you probably have at your house, I went and built a small forest bed... and I used Cedar, which is found in the forest, fool.

I then looked at the garden I had built and demanded it grow things that my wife and I could eat. The garden listened, and began growing, zucchini, squash, snap peas, green beans, asparagus, onions, green onions, celery, banana peppers, jalapenos, tomatoes, bell peppers, spinach, romaine lettuce, green leaf lettuce, cilantro, basil, parsley, corn and melon.  I considered making the garden grow us some beef, but did not want to deplete the soil nutrients too quickly (we did fill this thing with near 40 wheel barrow loads of dirt).

Now when the wife or I are hungry we just walk out to the garden and eat things.
That's how we roll.

The things some people say it offers that other services don’t (cross device calls and texts) can be achieved for free with Google Voice and there is very little difference to the end users. The biggest things Project Fi has going for it are these two things:

1. WiFi Assistant

This could/should be huge… like really super duper huge. Free high speed WiFi all over the place. Stream and browse at will! That said I’ve been on Project Fi for 4 months and have only had 3 or 4 keys. This needs to improve drastically in order to mitigate the large price increase people coming from far more data friendly plans would…
